Martins Ferry Blanked by Wheelersburg


Martins Ferry's run in the Division 5 playoffs is over, following a 45-0 shutout at the hands of the Wheelersburg Pirates in Columbus.

The Purple Riders threatened in the opening quarter, but a turnover inside the five-yard line ended the drive.

The Pirates would drive 96 yards for a touchdown, and take a 14-0 lead.  The Purple Riders never recovered.

Martins Ferry's season ends at 10-2. It was the first time the Riders failed to score this season.

Wheelersburg (11-1) will play for the Region 17 championship next Saturday against Bishop Hartley (11-1).
